  • Clinton And Trump Are Losing A Lot Of Young Voters

    Donald Trump received one of his better polling results on Thursday — at least since the conventions. The highly regarded Pew Research Center released a survey showing Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 41 percent to 37 percent, with Gary Johnson at 10 percent and Jill Stein at 4. Consequently, Clinton’s chances of winning the election dropped 2 points in both our forecasts, to 86 percent in polls-only and to 76 percent in polls-plus. The fact that a 4-point deficit is a “good” result for Trump should give you a sense for how poorly he’s doing. Clinton remains a clear favorite...

    thecollegefix.com ^ | 8/5/16 | William Nardi - Roger Williams University
    Growing up, Jimmie Williams’ family and friends supported the Democrat Party. So naturally, he decided he too was a Democrat. But the older he got, the more he questioned the political path that seemed predetermined for him. He suppressed his doubts, telling The College Fix in an email interview dissenters are branded traitors to the black community. In private, however, his concerns grew — even as he took on leadership roles within the University of Memphis College Democrats and the College Democrats of Tennessee. Then, in 2014, Williams attended a meeting of the College Republicans at the University of Memphis...

    Here’s one more group millennials are ignoring as they spend time glued to their smartphones — airline personnel. About 61% of millennials admitted to hiding behind electronic devices in order to avoid interacting with airline staff, according to a survey market-research firm Mintel conducted among 2,000 adults. Beyond millennials, less than half of Generation X — those born roughly between 1965 and 1980 — say they avoid airline personnel, and less than 37% of baby boomers said so. Automated technology is increasingly replacing people for cost-savings and convenience, and few travelers still value the human touch in the process.

    Choose your truism. Millennials are the most diverse, tolerant, connected, educated, and idealistic generation ever. Or the most narcissistic, lazy, entitled, coddled, distrustful and disconnected. Or the most downwardly mobile, debt-ridden, unlaunched, unmarried, unchurched, and apolitical. Or a great bunch of kids who play nicely with others, love their parents, respect their elders, want to save the planet, and can’t catch a break. Each of these cliches — and all their wondrous Jekyll-and-Hyde contradictions — have been around for a quite a while. So have millennials themselves. They’re not kids anymore; the oldest are 35.

    Millennials are not some vast unsolvable mystery. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau (PDF), they earn $2,000 less than their parents did at a comparable age, they are more likely to live in poverty, and they are more likely to live at home. But Baby Boomers and Gen Xers still seem to find it hard to believe that basic economic math can explain much of the younger generation’s behavior. After several news outlets, including The Daily Beast, reported that rates of millennial sexual inactivity in early adulthood are surprisingly high, armchair social theorists came out in force...

    Hillary Clinton may be leading her competitors with the millennial demographic, but the results of a recent Gallup poll show she doesn’t have much to celebrate. The poll addresses “Hillary Clinton’s Continuing Youth Problem,” showing that the problem is not only continuing, it’s reached its worst point. Only 31 percent of millennials have a favorable opinion of Hillary. The low favorable ratings are worse considering a year ago 47 percent of those 18- to 29-year-olds had a favorable opinion of her. Hillary is barely viewed positively even among young Democrats. She holds a favorable rating of 48 percent to 47...

She makes out with guys sometimes, and she likes to cuddle. “To me, there’s more intimacy with having someone there next to you that you can rely on without having to have sex,” she said. “I don’t want to do anything that would harm the relationship and be something that we can’t come back from.” Sam Wei, 26, finds “intellectual conversation more stimulating and more pleasurable than having sex sometimes.” (Courtesy of Sam Wei) It’s a less sexy time to...

    PPP’s latest polling clearly over-sampled Democrats, yet their results still reveal the struggles of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party. In the PPP poll, 52 percent of respondents voted for President Obama, while only 41 percent said they voted for Romney; this shows a skewed sample, as the 2012 race was much closer than that. Despite this, looking into PPP’s crosstabs, millennials are leaning more Republican than some may have thought. Among ages 18 to 29, only 36 percent have a favorable view of the Democrat Party, and 47 have an unfavorable view. The low favorability number can likely be...

    In hopes of promoting the narrative of a US housing recovery, one recurring thesis has been that as Millennials get older and start families, they will eventually leave their parents' basement and buy a house or shift from renting to owning. So far the facts have refused to corroborate this, and according to the latest "Housing Vacancies and Homeownership" report released on Thursday, the dream of owning a home just became even more distant. The reason: after staging a feeble rebound in late 2015, the US homeownership rate just tumbled from 63.5% to 62.9%, tied for the lowest print going...

    After rising just over a decade ago to its highest level ever, the nation's home ownership rate fell to match its all-time low and could drop even further in the months to come. In the second quarter of this year, the rate fell to 62.9 percent, not seasonally adjusted, which is the same as it was in 1965, when the U.S. Census started tracking the metric. During the epic housing boom in the mid-2000s, the rate soared as high as 69.2 percent. That was when politicians touted the so-called "ownership society."

And that matters because millennials, which the Pew Research Center defines as people born between 1981 and 1998, hold a particularly powerful deck of cards this election. Many of them say they are exasperated with their options for president in 2016. Aaron Lequia of Merced, who plays the mobile game in local parks, said he’s struggling with how to cast his vote in November. Ever since he...

That's the finding of a new GenForward poll that also found just 19 percent of young people have a favorable opinion of Trump compared to the three-quarters of young adults who hold a dim view of the New York billionaire. Trump's likely general election opponent, Hillary Clinton, is also unpopular with young people, but not nearly to the same extent as the real...

Opinions of Clinton among young Americans vary by race and ethnicity, according to a new GenForward poll of adults ages 18 to 30. The majority of the nation's younger blacks and Asian-Americans have a favorable impression of Clinton, but the presumptive Democratic nominee struggles with whites and Hispanics.

Federal officials admitted they plan to use this list to target Millennials with emails and enticements to pressure them into joining Obamacare.

The center's findings, based on a survey of 1,171 adults aged 18-36 in the United States, also found that those who lacked health insurance were disproportionately female, people of color, younger, less educated and unemployed. The proportion of millennials who don't have health insurance has declined significantly in recent...

As such, they tend to have a deep-seated, some would say exaggerated, sense of their own importance. Now that the last of the millennials, those born in the late 1990s, have reached voting age, the millennial generation is exerting ever greater influence on presidential politics. The campaign of Bernie Sanders, one of the most radical leftists ever to run for the presidency, is almost their exclusive preserve. Sanders's platform is well targeted to the idealism of most millennials. It offers free universal health care ("Medicare for...

    Many of America’s young adults appear to be in no hurry to move out of their old bedrooms. For the first time on record, living with parents is now the most common arrangement for people ages 18 to 34, an analysis of census data by the Pew Research Center has found. Nearly one-third of millennials live with their parents, slightly more than the proportion who live with a spouse or partner. It’s the first time that living at home has outpaced living with a spouse for this age group since such record-keeping began in 1880. The remaining young adults are...

    I read a great article in the Wall Street Journal this week: Decoding Millennials – For $20,000 an hour. Wow! Sounds like the Millennial dream job! Unfortunately Millennials need not apply; apparently in order to be a Millennial expert you have to not BE a Millennial.Butt first the problem: the generation born in the 1980s and 1990s (referred to as Millennials as they came of age around 2000) now make up the largest single generational group in the workforce and big companies are scrambling to figure out how to make them happy. Remember when recent hires used to do the...

    If you’ve been living under a rock and still question whether we’re seeing a breakdown of the traditional family, you won’t after this. A new Gallup poll released Thursday shows while fewer Americans are getting married – or are waiting much longer to get married – than in past decades, they feel little to no compulsion against having kids in the meantime. But rather than simply stating the numbers -- which are depressing enough -- Gallup felt compelled to throw in its two cents on how businesses – and society as a whole – should respond to the shift in...

    The world is still paying attention to millennials and their migration habits, despite Generation Z’s incoming threat. And while millennials appear to like cities, thanks to their good public transportation and myriad Apple Stores, a new study says some of the world’s biggest urban areas are in danger of losing their young people in the next 10 years. Global initiative group YouthfulCities interviewed 15,000 millennials in 34 cities all over the world, splitting them up by continent. And of those millennials, 58 percent said they planned to leave their city within the next decade, noting that they’re being driven out...

    What exactly has birthed the Pajama Boy aristocracy — our overclass of pretentious, inexperienced, and smug 30-something masters of the universe? Prolonged adolescence? Affluence? The disappearance of physical chores and muscular labor? The collapse of traditional liberal education and the triumph of the therapeutic mindset? Disdain for or ignorance of life outside the Boston–New York–Washington corridor? Political correctness as a sort of careerist indemnity that allows one to live a sheltered and apartheid existence? The shift in collective values and status from production, agriculture, and manufacturing to government, law, finance, and media? The reinvention of the university as a social-awareness...

    Millennials are more open to idea of slavery reparations: Study shows majority of young people think African Americans should be compensated for ancestors' suffering **SNIP** Baby boomers between ages 51-69 are similar, with a 79-17 per cent margin against reparations. The numbers start changing when it comes to Generation Xers, with Americans between the ages of 35-50 breaking 73 per cent to 25 per cent against reparations. The biggest shift comes with millennials, with a majority — 51 per cent — saying that reparations should be paid or they were unsure of whether reparations should be paid.

    Donald Trump is my idol and source of inspiration. His campaign to win the presidency has become a movement. His message is concise yet controversial. He says what he means and means what he says. I support Donald Trump for many reasons, but I’ll start with this one: his policies. I love his strong, pro-American stance on immigration. I believe the United States is a country of laws and we need to enforce our laws. When tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are pouring into our country through the southern border, there is a problem. Not all of these people...

    Was talking to a recently-retired computer-science professor today; he said in the last few years he's been seeing students showing up in college who have literally Never. Used. A. Screwdriver. He has been teaching a higher-level class in automating control of a train setup. Part of the project is to assemble a train car from a kit. These kids have no idea how to do it.

    1. Younger people tend to have more liberal views. This is not a permanent state of being. Asking a 20 year old who has never held a job about capitalism is not a good use of anyone's time. Asking him ten years later whether he thinks he pays too much in taxes will be far more meaningful. Polls of younger people tend to produce scary results. This isn't a new phenomenon. 2. Using "millennial" as a political punching bag is a bad idea. We're talking about people who were born over a 20 year period. Plenty of them hold jobs...

    This was a song done by Christian recording artist Micah Taylor as he introduced a talk about evangelizing Millennials, and it's called "Millennials". The song is done to the tune of The Beatle's "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Dah". He recorded all the voices. It's really funny...right until the end. Something to enjoy on a Saturday morning.
